Comment

Towne contributed seven lots to Christie’s to be auctioned on 25 March 1808 “for the charity benefit of an artist”, possibly Robert Freebairn. Lot 87 was In the Grisons, looking on Thusis with a reserve of £2 2s. It was perhaps a version of FT361 (or, just possibly, that drawing itself, drawn in 1781).
